The current economic climate highlights the importance of sustainability in supply chains to ensure business continuity and resilience. At the same time, there is an increase in sustainability-related legislative developments and a growing customer demand for more sustainable goods and services. Companies, therefore, look to re-evaluate their approach, policies, processes, and strategies on sustainability.
